Port Magpies to play AFL players

Post by Lee on Mon Apr 01, 2013 8:47 am

TFSA understands that the SANFL is concerned at the Magpies poor performance and will bolster their team by adding any Port AFL players aligned to the bye team that week. Those players would train with the Magpies that week.

The SANFL believes this would also be a good trial of the mooted Reserves side in the SANFL next year.

TFSA feels this should be resisted strongly by the clubs and all supporters should protest strongly.

if it is the magpies reserves, I don't have a problem with it, but if it is league I do. Surely the 8 other clubs need to unite and say no.

That would be outrageous. They're making that call on the back of one result? To introduce something like that at any time creates an uneven playing field, let alone once the season has actually started.
If it's a matter the clubs get to vote on, I can't imagine it will get very far.

It is however concerning that many believed the SANFL would make such a decision.

From the instant I read it, it was clear that it was an April Fools attempt.

Just announced that Aaron Young has transferred from North to Port Magpies due to him being played in the reserves last weekend.

Utter crap, hope Port do not win a game all year.

Back in 1877 it was the first season of SAFL football
Players were at a premium, the Port Adelaide Club placed adds Australia wide for recruits

One man arrived from Melbourne by ship to Largs Bay
He got a ride to the Semaphore Stables looking for a horse
The stable was out of horses , and could only offer the Melbournian a Camel for transport

Well it had to do, the Melbournian rode his camel to the Alberton Hotel
Walks into the front bar , orders a Sarsapirilla
He was mocked by the locals for drinking a soft drink
One local passed comment about riding into Alberton on a Camel and drinking like a wimp
A confrontation arose, and a front bar brawl was on

The police were summoned and the Melbounian was taken into custody
He was asked the following questions by the police officer
" Name"
" Dave Bonney."
" Where ya from."
" Melbourne."
" What is your mode of transport in Adelaide?"
" Camel."
" Whatttt."
" Camel, no horses for sale, so bought a Camel."
" Well alright smartarse is the Camel a male or female then?"
" Dont know, no hang on, its a female."
" Well howdya know its a female ?"
" Easy, when I rode into Alberton today someone said "Look at the c..t on the Camel."

You asked for it Redandblack !

Sorry Scrappy, good joke, but that word's not acceptable on TFSA and swear filter avoidance doesn't make it better Very Happy

Play on.

well they can have Hitchcock now, as i mentioned in a thread earlier (could even be this thread for all i know) they wont wait for a meeting for a reserves team discussion & one by one will build their own, i feel for blokes like Summerton who will eventually be weeded out

yep, while it is sad traditionally it is time for Port to go & the Power play their reserves in the VFL (same with the Crows) because they have obviously no respect for the competition or the history of it

Why to Port Magpies?

I know South and Sturt probably declined, but did they ask every club?
